Montreal Gazette interview with Nancy

Nancy

Montreal Gazette: Heart recently did what many of its contemporaries have failed to do: get into the Billboard Top 10 with an album of new material.

I know! What happened, right? (Laughs)

What kind of reaction did you and Ann have to that?

Shock, disbelief, pinching ourselves. It was a really cool, cool thing. There are many plaques we never cared so much to put up on our wall. But that one’s on the wall.

Dog & Butterfly (HD) 01/29/11

From Pepsi Center, Corner Brook, Canada

and here’s Crazy On You:

From The Georgian: Many people from the Bay St. George area could be spotted amongst the crowd gathered at the Pepsi Centre, including Meghan Targett and her aunt, Lorraine Gaudet.

“We used to listen to Heart all the time when we lived together a few years ago and it was always her and my uncle Mike’s – unfortunately deceased – dream to go to a Heart concert together,” said Meghan.

She noted the concert was much more than what she expected it to be.

“I knew they’d be good, but they were fantastic,” she said. “Ann has a voice that gives you cold chills.”

Her favourite song of the evening was “Crazy on You” – and especially Nancy’s guitar solo at the beginning of the song.

“Wow, what a guitar player,” exclaimed Meghan. “If they came back to Corner Brook next weekend I’d go see them again.” More from The Georgian!

Alone, January 28th 2011, St. John

And here’s a link to sandyb78’s channel on YouTube with many songs and CLOSE UP! (Thanx Sandy, for sharing!)

A review from The Telegram: The group’s performances of “Magic Man,” “Crazy on You” and “Barracuda” as well as a medley of “Even it Up” and The Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter” were well-appreciated by the crowd, but it was “Alone” that stole the show: while the stage was bathed in a blue light, and accompanied only by a piano and Nancy on acoustic guitar and harmonies, Ann performed an amazing stripped-down, slowed-down, haunting rendition of the song that earned a standing ovation from the crowd.

4 new interviews from Canada

Ann Wilson

From PrinceGeorgeCitizen.com: The Wilson sisters continue to create memorable songs.

“Nancy and I are both great writers of endless notebooks filled with words,” said Ann. “We will refer to our notebooks and whenever we do a song that ends up with Heart it comes from some kind of real-life situation. All the songs are real and autobiographical.”

The Wilson family loved music and would listen to all kinds when Nancy and Ann were kids. More from this interview with Ann Wilson.

From kvstyle.com: I asked her what she thinks of musically when she thinks of Canada. “April Wine and Rush,” she said.

I said, “Ann, Rush is a real guys’ thing.”

“I know,” she said. “One of our crew told us that to know what it’s like to be a man you need to understand Rush so Nancy and I said ‘OK.’ We watched the Rush documentary Beyond the Lighted Stage and we liked it, we got it.” More from this interview with Ann Wilson

From The Guardian: “People would find me boring,” she says, with a laugh. “I don’t drink. I take vitamins and work out. I do 35 minutes of cardio, weights, pilates and yoga four times a week. It works.” More from The Guardian

From Toronto Sun: Now, can you imagine doing this at 70? Ann: “Well, 70 is the new 40, you know! But yeah, that will be a real challenge”. More from Toronto Sun.

Heart’s dreamboat continues to sail

Tour 2011

The Georgian.com: As the telephone conversation begins, barking can be heard in the background.

Clearly the dog wants its owner’s attention.

No big deal, except the owner is one of rock’s most enduring singer-songwriters and she’s doing a long-distance interview about her band’s upcoming tour.

“Excuse me, can I let my dog out? Hang on, please.”

The telephone receiver is laid down and the sound of a door opening can just barely be heard. A few seconds later, the receiver is picked back up.

“Sorry about that.”

It’s easy to excuse Ann Wilson for the break. More from this interview at The Georgian.com
